Blackburn boss Allardyce: Chelsea should be in Champions League final

Blackburn Rovers boss Sam Allardyce says Chelsea should be in the Champions League final.

Speaking ahead of the meeting between the two clubs on Sunday, Allardyce said: "It is not Chelsea's fault they are not playing in the Champions League final.

"Guus and the players deserved to have got there over the two legs but unfortunately it was taken away from them by those extremely poor decisions from the referee.

"That is very sad for Chelsea and a bitter pill to swallow. The players now have just the FA Cup final to look forward to and not the golden prize they have been chasing for a long time."
